Sadly building mutt directly from the source package fails:

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/mutt-'
##test -f manual.html || make manual.html || cp ./manual*.html ./
cp ./manual*.html ./
cp: cannot stat `./manual*.html': No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [try-html] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/mutt-'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/mutt-'
make: *** [install] Error 2

I see this was reported before, back in 2007 - - but there
was never a solution posted. Anyone have any idea what is causing it?
I'm assuming I should just be able to cd to /usr/src/mutt- and
'./configure' followed by 'make install'.

There also seem to be development "remains" in the source package - for
example files like lib.c~ (which looks like an emacs backup file, to
me), handler.c.orig000, mbox.c.cygwin, etc.  - although I don't know
which of those are from the original source and which from the Cygwin
